Am I overweight or obese?

If you have a body mass index (BMI) that’s higher than normal your risks increase for chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and Type 2 diabetes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) use the following categories to determine if you’re underweight, normal weight, overweight, or obese based on your BMI:

  • Underweight = BMI less than 18.5

  • Normal weight = BMI 18.5 to less than 25

  • Overweight = BMI 25 to less than 30

  • Obese = BMI 30 or greater
